The sample at the beginning of “Big Man With A Gun” comes from studio-altered recording of a porn star having an orgasm. According to the album booklet, this “sample” is titled “Steakhouse” and is credited to Tommy Lee.
In the 5.1 surround edition of the 2004 re-release of The Downward Spiral, the scream heard at the beginning is replaced with a distant wail, which echoes around the speakers.
